In June, David Mealing’s debut novel, SOUL OF THE WORLD (US | UK | AUS), stunned readers with its complex magic system, charming characters, and deep worldbuilding. It’s the epic story of three heroes who must unlock and master three disparate forms of magic in order to determine the fate of the world. So, if you’re looking for your next doorstopper of a fantasy, complete with magical creatures and world-ending scope, then we promise you’ll love Soul of the World.
And if you’ve already read it (even if you haven’t had the chance to jump in yet, we’ll let you look too), behold this gorgeous cover for book two, BLOOD OF THE GODS! The sequel promises just as much magic, mayhem, and world shattering action as the first.
The battle for the city is over, but the aftermath of a revolution is never simple…
Sarine begins to experience visions, ones which make her dragon familiar sicker every day. Erris pushes toward conquest and the need to expand her territory and restore her power. And, exiled from his tribe, Arak’Jur apprentices himself to a deadly master.
Faced with the threat of a return to the days of darkness, the heroes begin to understand the depth of the sacrifices required from them. To protect their world, they’ll have to stand and fight once more.
